Pumpkin Cookies

These pumpkin cookies are my go to recipe whenever I need cookies fast. I love their cakey, pumpkin-y goodness! They are my number one favorite cookie! The recipe is so simple and fast. No matter where I take these cookies, they are always a BIG hit. I’ve given out the recipe to so many, so why not keep passin’ it on through Flavor of the Month at Bake at 350. Enjoy! 

Pumpkin Cookies- Makes about 2 dozen
2 ½ c. flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter (1 stick) at room temp.
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°.  Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  In a separate bowl (I use my kitchen aide), cream together butter and sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla to butter mixture.  Mix in dry ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.


  1. "Cakey pumpkin-y goodness"...sign me up!!! :)

  2. I don't see how much or what kind of sugar is used in these cookies.

  3. Oops, sorry about that...I updated the recipe above. 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar and 1 cup pumpkin puree were the changes I made. Thanks for noticing!
